Publisher's Summary

It starts like any other Monday for Ty Christianson. Fifty laps in his pool, a suave suit, a chat with his mum on the way to his office, dodging countless calls from women, and his faithful yet cynical assistant waiting for him with a coffee. Then a meeting with his business partner and life-long friend Sal upends everything. Sal's hired a new assistant without so much as consulting Ty. That's a cardinal sin in their world, but it's the least of Ty's worries. Sal hasn't just hired a new personal assistant, he's hired an absolute goddess - and she's off-limits to Ty. 

Lainey Summer drives Ty crazy with her savage beauty, her effortless sexiness, and her unfathomable veneer. She plays her cards way too close to her chest, and doesn't that just make her more enticing? 

Unlucky for Lainey, Ty’s notoriously irresistible. 

Unlucky for Ty, Lainey can resist him.Or can she? 

As Ty sets on a mission to break Lainey, an intended conquest becomes a fixation. 

And in the process, he’s thrown into perfect chaos.

First Jodi Ellen Malpas book I didn’t like

I’m shocked that I wouldn’t like this books so much, but there are numerous reasons. I don’t remember if I’ve ever rated a book so low.

1. It takes nearly 5 hours just to get them together in the actual same scene. And even then their conversations and banter were quite droll until the second half.
2. Tyler and Lainey’s relationship doesn’t make sense. They’re both mistrusting, vindictive, and toxic. Tyler’s behavior when he’s under duress is also not attractive, and quite frankly quite scary. If I ever saw a real man act so physically even when not directed towards me, I would be panicked and concerned. For his well being and mine. He’s a ticking time bomb.
3. It's half-finished. Even when Tyler finds out the truth about Lainey, it’s never explored or examined in a deeper context like in This Man. Everything is just swept under the rug. It’s like a cop-out to just forgive everything in the name of love. These are not lighthearted betrayals; it’s an abuse of trust. Lainey and Tyler are not good people in essence and it makes it hard to be empathetic.
4. It bothers me that Tyler’s best friend and family would push him to Lainey after the revelation. That’s not what support looks like. Yes, friends push, but it’s usually when you’re being an asshole. Yes, Lainey and Tyler had their cute moments, but she hurt him to the extremes. How can you as a best friend or mother excuse that? No matter if your heart lingered on someone, if he/she/they hurt my loved ones, I would fight someone. Tyler did nothing wrong; he’s the victim and they pushing him towards her minimizes the hurt he experienced at the moment. Where was Gina at that moment? She would’ve torn Lainey a new one.
5. Even his friend needs some form of couple’s therapy because their relationship isn’t healthy either. What Moira did to Sal is not okay. And how they treat each other in general.

I love JEM’s writing style but this story was just a no for me.

As for the narrator, I liked Blake Stanton’s voice but it can sound like a British butler at times, like Alfred. He portrayed Lainey as a soft-spoken or dainty woman but that’s not the kind of woman Lainey is so it was jarring.

Kept me wondering!

Ty and Lainey’s story is one for the books. See what I did there 😏 Ty is take aback by this new girl who flaunts into his life without warning. She takes his heart by storm and runs with it. Promising to never hurt him. But she has this secret he can’t figure out and you sure won’t either. Love love love this story of triumph and overcoming fears! Need more of their story Jodi! 🥰

A good book, but felt unfinished

First let me say that I love JEM and hate that I have any negative feedback, so I say this with love. I found parts of the book to be a bit redundant and the ending fell flat and abrupt. The story felt unfinished to me.

I love this story so much. Jodi has outdone herself with this stand alone novel. The characters are fascinating and exciting. once you start you won't want to stop.

Heard Better

Definitely not at the caliber of This Man Series. Don't think the Author took the time to complete story or character backgrounds before publishing this. I would love to say it was great but it wasn't.

TEDIOUS!!

Early on in the book it already felt like it was going to be too long. It could have easily been half as long and told the same story. Having said that, the characters weren’t at all likable and so much of the drama was just unnecessary. It’s a pet peeve of mine when a conversation can clear so much confusion and prevent painful drama between the main characters. Unfortunately, that’s the entirety of this book. Things don’t get cleared up until the end of the book...12 hours later. It felt like it this story was never ending . This was a painful listen.

Frustrating

I love this author but this book frustrated me to no end. Ty is the most naive man it’s unbelievable how sadly dumb he was when it came to Lainey. He believed everything that came out of her mouth and NO ONE is that in love with a woman. It turned pathetic after a time.

No my favorite

I have read EVERY SINGLE book by Jodi. I will never turn one away. As a matter of fact, I have also re read all her books. I will not be re reading this one. I didn’t feel the depth of the story like with her others. I loved Ty and I wish I could have gotten to know Lanie better. I’m glad I listened to it though. The Narrater did a fantastic job!

Enjoyed Immensely

This author knows how to pull at your heart strings, take them, then make you want more! The love, the heartache, the hidden mysteries throughout the plot as it thickened is stupendous. Laney and Tyler have both been hurt and never again want to feel that tragic way again. The player contending with the played and both falling ass over elbow when sparks burst into being between them.
You need to listen to this novel!
Shane East is magnificent in his emotions, his fascination with creating a world that the author is hoping to convey through their words. No one does it better❤

Bad narration

This book Could have been so good but the narration totally spoilt it for me , I’ve seen Jodi comment distinguished well that’s certainly not my interpretation.
I don’t think she reads reviews but there are some stellar narrators out there but her publishes tend to let her down if only she would speak to some of her co authors They put such effort into there choices if you insist on English Shane East , Richard Chamberlain Will Wyatt, all English , Sebastian York (king of narration) Joe Arden although Americans do a splendid English accent , Edita Brychta was fantastic for her first two trilogies

Please please take this on board and stop rubbishing her books

Great immersive story

I really enjoyed the story, not unconventional yet somewhat different in style within its genre. The voice acting was ok, apart from a man reading the female dialogue — slightly cringe! The Perfect escape if you need a moment away from reality.

Helen, I salute you!

wow

I absolutely loved this book. A beautiful love story sexy, steamy scenes that actually enhanced the book but didn't make it seedy. i will definitely read this over again and I have no doubt that I will enjoy it just as much the second time around. The characters were so believeable and the narration was spot on. I highly recommend this story. I gave 4 stars to performance because I like female narrators too

Manwhore brought to his knees

The storyline was excellent and the narrator did a fabulous job of bringing all the characters to life.
The only negative was the inordinate use of the F word which became irritating considering the length of the audiobook

a fabulous rollercoaster ride

what a fantastic book. Loved the story and absolutely adored Ty and Lainey. Perfect narration from Shane East. That man could read the phone book to me and If be happy.

The side characters of Gina, Sal, Moya, Ty's mother and her beau, and Martha were great additions too. The story traveled along at a nice pace, the sex was hot, hot, hot, and the setting was sexy. I honestly couldn't fault this book. This is my first Jodi Ellen Malpas book (yeah, I know, where have I been?), but it won't be my last.

Perfect chaos

I have read the book and fell in love with ty then I thought would give the audiobook a listen to as I like reading a book or kindle. As Jodi Ellen malpas is my favourite author. The voice of Shane East is very relaxing. Will definitely be downloading more of my favourite books to listen to.

Cannot download!!

I would really love to read and review this audiobook, as I’ve “spent” a credit on it... but I can’t download it at all. (Similar to another couple of titles in my library that I’d love to listen to, btw)
What do I do? Suggestions please? I don’t want to delete it in the hope of it correcting itself, but then losing it (and my credit) completely... I’m seriously considering deleting my audible account and not purchasing or recommending any future books.
Please heed, Audible!
